Центр распределенных вычислений ИППИ РАН и российское отделение IDGF проводит рейтинг проектов добровольных распределенных вычислений. Опираясь на результаты социологического исследования предпочтений и пожеланий кранчеров, проведенного нами в 2014 году, а также на результаты наших коллег, проводится попытка выявления и обобщения мнений сообщества кранчеров о значимых характеристиках различных проектов. Результаты данного опроса могут быть полезными для улучшения взаимодействия между проектами и сообществом кранчеров. Проект SAT@home является крупнейшим российским проектом, что означает повышенные требования со стороны кранчеров. Помогите сделать SAT@home лучше - оцените проект в анкете:
